         I like houses.     Ben likes me, so, we’ve had a few (houses, that is) like ten over 31 years, one a rental, the others owned, a few extra.     Lucky me. I know.     Most have been 100+ years old just waiting for me to return them to either their […]

  • House Crazy Sarah - Cheryl you tease! Show MORE PICS of your house in NOLA! It looks amazing! I love learning about you house adventures!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - I know. I should but I’m a little worried about security- the house is recognizable if you’re on a Garden District tour. I don’t know. Maybe I should? What do you think?ReplyCancel

  • Home and Lifestyle Design - Love those columns. We lived in New Orleans for awhile and I absolutely love all the architecture in that city and we loved going to Cafe Rani in Uptown. New Orleans is such a special place. Enjoy!
    Thanks, PattyReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Hi Patty! When we first moved here (and even now) I drove around for two years and just drooled over the architecture. It’s such a visual city- so inspiring. We just LOVE it! Cafe Rani is wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • enchantedseashells.com - What a beautiful house! I think you should stay private, cos there are lots of cray cray peeps out there in the world.ReplyCancel

  • Rich Rumple - No Ghosts? Why, that’s so unlike New Orleans it makes my head spin! Supposedly, even the apartment complex I lived in for a while in Baton Rouge was supposed to have a ghost that traveled through the courtyard every night looking for a lost love. (She should’ve have stopped at the apartment above me … they were noisy enough to share their love, for sure!) Nice house & pics!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle Liew - This was certainly a wonderful pictorial! Grabbing your badge!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - How wonderful your home is Cheryl. Love the turquoise door, knocker, columns, and gallery. You probably have the most interesting house in the blogosphere.ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Lovely shots!ReplyCancel

     The bridges that connect Manhattan with it’s surrounding boroughs (and New Jersey) are a site to behold.     I boated under a few of them recently and looked up in awe.     Yes, they’re big.     Yes, they’re handsome.     But they also tell the story of a nation under construction, engineering feats, […]

  • Sharon Greenthal - Growing up in New York I was a passenger driving over the Whitestone bridge many times heading to NYC. The bridges of New York truly are amazing.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - They really are. Sadly I only swam (boated) under a few of them. Maybe my next trip I’ll get to them all.ReplyCancel

  • Ruchira Khanna - Wow…amazing shots, Cheryl.

    I also liked reading about its history.

    TGIF!ReplyCancel

  • Sandra - That was fascinating. Really interesting to read abou the history of the bridges. I never even wondered and here’s all of this history. Thanks.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - I only wrote a very small amount about the histories. There is soooo much more- some of it heartbreaking.ReplyCancel

  • Michelle Liew - Beautiful…now what I need is a chance to visit! Thanks for sharing, Cheryl!ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - I’m more familiar with the Brooklyn Bridge’s history, but these are beautiful shots of each!ReplyCancel

  • Jenny Lynn - This was such a fun tour and history lesson. I have always wanted to visit the Brooklyn Bridge. Someday!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hey there Jenny! Nice to see you here! NYC is full-up with bridges crossing the East and Hudson rivers. I only rolled along the East River this time. Maybe next visit we’ll motor on over to the other side of the island! And take pic’s!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - The Brooklyn Bridge was completed by a woman, well how to do you like that. This was so interesting Cheryl,(honestly) as are all of your posts. We went to NY one year and saw the statue of Liberty.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Yes. Yes it was. Women rule the world- but you already know that don’t ya Sue? Hahahaha God- I wonder what the two of us could accomplish together?!!!!ReplyCancel

     When the weather gets cooler, and the days shorter, it’s just a darn good idea to visit a big hothouse space to soak up the artificial light and smell the dirt (Ya gotta take what you can get).      So don’t get S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder), get G.L.A.D. (Gorgeous Light All Day) […]

      This is probably not the best way to start this post, but, don’t you just love the feel of something pliable in your hands?     I’m talking clay, or dough, or dirt, or maybe a bit of molten metal (smelting under a torch, chamfering the rough edges, forming the burning malleable mass into […]
